Message for September 2, 2018 from Pastor Shirley

Genesis 3:6-7 … she took some of the fruit and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. Then their eyes were opened, and they both realized that they were naked. Verse 9-11 Then the Lord God called to Adam and said to him, “Where are you?” So he said, “I heard Your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid myself.” And He said, “Who told you that you were naked?


     Who told Adam he was naked, after the fall.   After all he had been naked all along. When they ate the fruit, the knowledge of good and evil came in.  It changed their view of their physical circumstances. God’s question to Adam “who told you that you were naked?”   The voice that told Adam he was naked was the voice of falsehood. He told man a lie, made him believe it, changed his view and he saw that he was naked and then he experienced shame.  The same voice is still speaking lies to people today. God is still asking us today, “who told you were naked? Or He may be saying, “who told you are not worthy, who told you that you will never amount to anything, who told you never be successful at anything.

     Who is that, whose words seems to be so powerful to you that it is causing you to experience a different perception of yourself?   Who is that, whose words are causing you to experience shame. Nothing truly stands if God has not spoken it. What He has to say about you is all that matters.  

     Just as the truth sets us free, so a lie brings us into bondage.
